Yoga Outreach Conference

  • The Studio @ Creative Coworkers 520 Alexander Street Vancouver, BC, V6A 1C7 Canada (map)

How do we co-create safer more meaningful yoga and spiritual communities? Matthew Remski, keynote speaker, asks this question in his latest book “Practice and All is Coming: Abuse, Cult Dynamics, and Healing in Yoga and Beyond,” which offers a sober view into collective and intergenerational trauma. It also offers a clear pathway forward into enhanced critical thinking, student empowerment, self-and-other care, and community resilience. 

To enhance this dialogue we have curated an amazing group of thoughtful and thought provoking panelists to further explore topics including compassionate boundary making and conflict resolution, self-care and all its many facets, and the concept of spiritual bypassing. Attendees will experience thoughtful challenges to predetermined ideas about what it means to live according to yogic principles of compassion and respect, while confronting harm for the benefit of communities, and individuals.

Other speakers include: June McCue, Farah Nazarali, Julie Peters, Insiya Rasiwala-Finn, Sjanie McInnis, Leslie Wilkin, Danielle Braun-Kaffman, Liana Yip, Renee Turner, and Sarah Holmes de Castro.
